Canon EOS R8 in More Detail

Made for hybrid content creation

Designed a full-frame sensor, fast processor and plenty of stills and video modes, the Canon EOS R8 strikes an effective balance between hybrid capabilities and affordability. Whether you most enjoy photography, videography or regularly shoot both, you can explore every creative avenue with the R8, starting out with the assistance of the Guided User Interface, which is ideal for newcomers to the system.

Stills modes such as sene selection, focus bracketing and multiple exposure ensure you can come away with any pre-visualised shot, while video modes include high-speed 180fps in Full HD, which is used for slow motion effects.

DIGIC X and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II

One of the most impressive features which the R8 offers is Canon’s powerful, wide coverage Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, made possible by the high-speed DIGIC X processor and sensor combination. The advanced focusing system tracks plenty of different subjects automatically, such as people, certain animals and vehicles, or you can choose through manual focus selection, with both methods providing consistently impressive results.

Eye and Face detection recognise and track subjects as they move, turn and change directions, harnessing deep-learning artificial intelligence to capture sharp results right across the frame.

Whether you shoot stills or video, action or portraits the EOS R8 camera provides relentless focus abilities to support your creativity.

Master of low light

With a high native ISO 102,400 (expandable to 204,800) and AF down to -6.5 EV, the EOS R8 will achieve focus even when your eyes struggle to see subjects in near darkness. This opens up the ability to capture anything from street photography at dusk, to wildlife at sunrise, and anything in between.

Always ready for the moment

The Canon EOS R8 body is able to capture the perfect moment thanks to 40fps in electronic shutter and also features RAW Burst mode, which shoots at up to 30fps, with 0.5 seconds before shutter button is pressed, helping you to come away with the perfect moment.

Pro-video with false colour warnings

In a technology shared with professional Cinema EOS cameras, the R8 offers False colour warnings, which give an indication of the current exposure levels. This helps achieve perfect exposure even when lighting conditions are challenging to work with.

Growing selection of RF mirrorless lenses

Newcomers joining the Canon mirrorless system gain access to a growing number of native Canon mirrorless camera lenses, designed for the RF mount. These include extremely cost-effective primes such as the RF 50mm F/1.8 STM and RF 16mm F/2.8 STM, through to professional zooms to capture every conceivable subject.

You can also use any EF lenses by adding one of several RF mount adapters, which include the Canon Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, ensuring you can always find the perfect lens whichever direction your content takes you. The EOS R8 with RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens makes a great starting point for those who want a wide angle zoom from the outset, with a wide to standard range in a versatile kit.

Wide range of accessories

The R8 capitalises on Canon’s huge mirrorless EOS R ecosystem, which has grown steadily to include everything you need to capture brilliant stills and video content. Accessories include Canon multi-function shoe accessories, for intuitive cable and battery-free operation. Choose from:

Our Verdict

Canon has completely upgraded the entry-level EOS RP and slotted the EOS R8 full-frame camera between that model and the high-end EOS R6 II. Everything in the R8 has been developed for ease-of-use, from the internal technology to external ergonomics, with Canon adding a new photo / video switch, bright EVF and large 3-inch LCD display.

It features the tried-and-tested full-frame sensor and processor combination from the EOS R6 II, which make the camera feel responsive and extremely competent for hybrid creators. You can capture stills at 24MP at high burst rates of 40fps as well as high-quality video, at up to 4K/60p oversampled, and create slow motion effects with high-speed 180fps Full HD.

The R8 camera body includes a bright, clear EVF and large 3-inch LCD screen, which clearly preview the scene and make great screens for Canon’s photo and video tools. Dual Pixel CMOS AF II ensures a wide range of subjects are recognised and tracked when shooting both stills and movies, whilst numerous modes help achieve perfect exposure and consistent sharpness.

The R8 also performs admirably when working in low light situations, with a wide ISO range up to ISO 102,400 and users can select scene types or preset modes to make it easier than ever to capture great images. There’s never been a more effective, compact and lightweight full-frame camera as the EOS R8, which offers so many features for hybrid shooters joining Canon’s formidable EOS R mirrorless system.
